Presentation by SofemaOnline (SOL) -

Visual inspection is an essential part of airplane maintenance.

The visual inspection component of NDI requires trained and experienced inspection personnel, using validated procedures and appropriate calibration standards with effective, well-maintained equipment in a well-managed maintenance environment.

Visual inspection is defined as the process of using the eye, alone or in conjunction with various aids, as the sensing mechanism from which judgments may be made about the condition of a unit to be inspected.

Review by Sofema Aviation Services (SAS)


The role of Aircraft Maintenance Inspector is without any doubt a complex task during which the inspector is required to visually search for multiple defects occurring at varying severity levels and differing locations, some of which may be difficult to reach or to achieve a comfortable position.

As aircraft age they are naturally more susceptible to defects and as a consequence typically require more intensive inspection programs.
